From the Best-Selling Author of Queen of Hearts comes a dark and mesmerizing twist on the beloved Children’s Classic, Peter Pan

Wendy Darling has a perfectly agreeable life with her parents and brothers in wealthy London, as well as a budding romance with Booth, the neighborhood bookseller’s son. But while their parents are at a ball, the charmingly beautiful Peter Pan comes to the Darling children’s nursery and—dazzled by this flying boy with god-like powers—they follow him out of the window and straight on to morning, to Neverland, a intoxicating island of feral freedom.

As time passes in Neverland, Wendy realizes that this Lost Boy’s paradise of turquoise seas, mermaids, and pirates holds terrible secrets rooted in blood and greed. As Peter’s grasp on her heart tightens, she struggles to remember where she came from—and begins to suspect that this island of dreams, and the boy who desires her—have the potential to transform into an everlasting nightmare.

Jan Review

I really liked the take of this peter pan retelling as it told from wendy point of view and it totally different then any other take i have read on peter pan.  It dark, violent, and it a far cry from the Disney fairy tale you love and know.  Their were parts that made me gasp with unbelief that the author had done what she done but yep that what happened.  I really liked the take on wendy being in love with a bookseller and really want to see her get back to him.  A great first book.
